|Providing a shopping experience in a store-like setting has always been one of the most important parts of our mission, but in light of the COVID-19 crisis, we have created Clothes To Kids Curbside. This will minimize person-to-person contact while still connecting kids in need with clothing. |
Parents and caregivers now have the opportunity to request a wardrobe for any student age 3 – 21 in need. Clothing will be thoughtfully selected and packaged for curbside pick-up. A Clothes To Kids wardrobe includes 5 outfits, 1 coat, 1 pair of shoes, 1 bra (optional) and 5 pairs each of new underwear and new socks.
Request a Wardrobe Today!
Call us at (720) 379-4630 and dial “0.” Phones are open Monday – Friday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. If we don’t answer, please leave a voicemail, and we will call you back as soon as possible. You can also request a wardrobe by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be prepared to share the following information about each eligible student:
* First name, last name and date of birth.
* Sizes for clothing, shoes, socks and underwear.
* Color, style and clothing type preferences.
* Specific needs and special requests.
By determining the specific needs and tastes of the students using our Curbside program, we hope that they can be just as selective as they would be if they were shopping in person!
**Temporary – No Referral Needed!
In order to make our services more readily available to those in crisis, we have loosened our referral requirements and will provide wardrobes to anyone who says the young people in their households are in need of our services, no questions asked.
Dear Clothes To Kids of Denver Supporter,
Like many of you, we at Clothes To Kids are concerned about the growing number of cases of Coronavirus/COVID-19 in the state of Colorado. In order to help slow the spread of the virus in our community and limit the risk of the virus affecting our shoppers, volunteers and staff, we have decided to temporarily suspend operations starting on March 14, 2020.
While we are closed, we will be unable to accept clothing and shoe donations. We appreciate your understanding during this uncertain time. We will keep you informed about our reopening date. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. We appreciate your continued support.
Valerie Lunka, Executive Director
With 100+ shoppers scheduled each day, we are in desperate need of jackets and coats, especially for our young men in middle and high school. Please take a look in your closets for coats, hoodies, 1/2 zips and jackets sizes size 4T – adult 5XL that would appeal to a child or young adult! Store hours are available at: https://clothestokidsdenver.org/hours-of-operation/. Thank you!
